It is a nice idea to include the wedding date and the Brides and Grooms names. This way the ornaments will also be a reminder of their anniversary. Be sure to prepare a table top tree that is unadorned, ready for the freshly made ornaments to be displayed.

    These are the wonderful ornaments to give gift to anyone on Christmas. But I love olive wood ornaments. Last year, I gave wooden ornaments to my friends, they were very happy to see them. Thanks for sharing the beautiful blog!

  34. Ellen H. on August 4, 2019 at 9:25 pm

    These ornaments are very beautiful and so creative. Decades ago, I made ornaments for my (now adult) kids that they still hang every year. They are asking me to make ornaments for their kids. The first grandkid is a college sophomore football player. I am hoping for suggestions of ornaments he would love now and want to integrate into his family tree along with those I made for his mother and any ornaments a future wife may bring into a marriage. What suggestions would you offer?
